I apologise for being a plebeian, but I am putting these thoughts just for “evolutionary” reasons. (Please don’t ask me to exemplify!)
Someone asked me what is the fundamental difference between being in ‘Love’ and having a ‘Crush’.
- You have a crush on someone with whom you would like to have your lunch. But you love someone… whom you are happy to see having lunch.
- You have a crush on someone with whom you would like to sleep. But you love someone whom you would like to see peacefully sleeping.
- You have a crush on someone for whom you stay hungry until that person eats. But you love someone for whom you yourself eat on time so that the other person doesn’t feel bad.
At a young age it is tough to differentiate between these two feelings and the result is always on an unhappy note. However, it is very true that even at later age this difference remains obscure to many.
